Art Journaling: BE KIND with Shari Carroll

Welcome everyone and HAPPY first day of March!!! I can feel it, Spring is on it’s way. I’m definitely in the mood for some bright colors and fun “free for all” creating.

I’ve added another entry to my art journal. This is a party on a page. It’s exploding with layers of paint, tissue paper and new washi tape from Dyan Reaveley and Dina Wakely. These tapes are amazing to add to your pages with super great colors and patterns!!

I’m working in my Dina Wakely Media journal on the kraft pages. I know it looks white, I added white paint to cover the outside edges once I had my design down.

Ranger has come out with some really cool Dina Wakely tissues for collage and journaling. They are printed with designs and words. I used Matte Gel Medium to glue them down.

Another fun item I used were the Dylussions paint pens. I found that I could draw with them and smear with my fingers to add little hints of color to areas of my page. They are also great for handwriting your journaling.

I had a blast creating this entry, I just let go and put down my items without much thought. I have a quick tip for you; Adhere the ends of your washi tape down with a glue stick or gel medium. This helps them become permanent.

  1. Fun art journaling using those bright colors and great images. It’s always a treat to see your creations!

  2. I was quite surprised when you started going around the edges with the white paint, because I thought it looked quite nice with the kraft edges, but I also like how this turned out. So, as with much mixed media, it seems one can do very little wrong as long as you’re having fun (and being kind!). Thanks for sharing, Shari.

  3. Perhaps I am too semantic but I don’t consider this a kit because it does not come with directions. I ordered one once and when I discovered it did not come with directions, I decided this is not for me.

  4. I loved how you created that and you made me feel like “I could do that”. thanks for the video and showing the different ways you make journal pages. Great job!
